It’s the news that’s going to devastate Troye Sivan’s local fans… his local shows, one of which was due to take place at Sydney’s Metro Theatre tonight, have been cancelled due to illness.
The teams at his label EMI and touring agent Frontier made the announcement just minutes ago, confirming that after consulting with a specialist late this afternoon, Troye has been advised to rest.
Naturally, the singer is devastated at the news. His statement reads,
“Hey Sydney and Perth,
Nothing could make me sadder than what I’m about to say. I’m really unwell and apparently, as I’ve been told by the 4 doctors I’ve seen in the last 24 hours, I have had acute laryngitis which has gotten much worse and now developed sinusitis, leaving me too sick to sing.
In the last week I’ve been to Washington DC, Toronto, New York, London, and Sydney, and it just feels like my body and voice have finally given up on me. I have family flying in for this show, friends flying in, journalists coming, music industry people coming that I’ve been looking forward to meeting for months, my record label who I care so deeply about and who work so hard every day (and who haven’t seen me play yet), this was my first home show (!!!!), and most importantly there’s you guys waiting outside the venue already, and I’m the fucking sickest I’ve probably ever been in my life. It sucks. I’m on antibiotics, medication to reduce mucus, a full dose of steroids, have drunk loads of water and been gargling everything under the sun – all to no avail. Hopefully the three or four days rest I get now will be enough to get me better.
Thank you for buying tickets, thank you for caring, thank you for understanding, and I swear I will be back and better than ever, with my voice, so so so so so soon (we’re already scrambling to look at new dates) to hug you guys, apologise, and give the hopefully amazing shows that you deserve.
Love you, love Troye xxxx”
